Babe Ruth, the all-time leader in OPS.

On-base plus slugging (OPS) is a sabermetric baseball statistic calculated as the sum of a player's on-base percentage and slugging average.[1] The ability of a player both to get on base and to hit for power, two important offensive skills, are represented.

Below is the list of the top 100 Major League Baseball players in career on-base plus slugging (OPS) with at least 3,000 career plate appearances.
